Help with bacterium's name

I've got duplicate slides labelled as follows: Prototheca wickerhamii and
Probetheca wickerhomii. I've looked in numerous textbooks for a spelling
to no avail. Can anyone help?

My suspicion is that someone in transcribing the name sloppily transcribed
the be to a to or visa versa and the o to an a in the species. However, no
book that I have consulted has a genus that matches either.
Thanks,

Cheers,
